Synopsis

Rarely in the modern English game has a player been as loved by his supporters, admired by his teammates and respected by his peers as Ledley King. And even more rarely has such a shining talent seen their career cut so tragically short. Named 'the best defender in Europe' by Thierry Henry, and described by Martin Jol as 'the best central defender I've ever seen', King was undoubtedly one of the greatest talents of his generation. Yet injury forced his retirement, aged only 31. But even at the height of his chronic knee trouble - when he could only train once a week, and was advised not to even play football with his son - King still managed to captain Tottenham Hotspur and be called up to the England squad. King documents the successes and struggles - both personal and professional - behind this unique and unprecedented footballing career: from King's childhood in East London, to his future out of the white shirt of his beloved Tottenham Hotspur.

As well as studying to be a coach, Ledley King now mentors disadvantaged Tottenham teenagers and acts as a Tottenham Hotspur Club Ambassador: continuing to give back to the community that shaped his life and the club that holds his heart. Award-winning journalist Mat Snow has been a Spurs and England fan since 1966 and is the former editor of the football magazine FourFourTwo and music monthly Mojo. He has written for numerous national newspapers and other periodicals, including the official club magazine, Hotspur.
